Instructables Internship - Day 2 Answered

Picture of

Hello Again!

Well, it's been Day 2 for me, here at Instructables, and truthfully; I'm having a blast!

So, what'd I do today? Well, I cut A TON of stickers out for the launch of the new Instructables Store. I did some more "outreach" work (mainly having to do with the science fair contest), and I tried to find places where I could get some surgical tubing for the top-secret project ;).I also started working on posting 2 new instructables that I have already built, they should be up in a reasonable amount of time, hopefully.

I found out another thing about Instructables, today. Everyone is excited about everyone else's work. You see, Billy (Tetranitrate) has this new project that he's working on, which is actually going to be super-super-awesome, and everyone's just so interested in his progress, it's pretty amazing. Even with site updates and layouts and stuff, everyone is so interested in everything, it's just awesome. I've been at other internships where the employees don't even get along, but here, they collaborate in getting stuff done. Oh boy, I love it here just a bit too much.

OH, That's right! I worked on some images for the new, yes, I said new, homepage layout/design! I'm actually really excited about it, mostly because I'm bored of looking at all of the same images EVERY SINGLE TIME I come to the site, and also because I get to pick some of what's going to be used on the new homepage.

You know, the best part of interning here is being able to give back to Instructables, and the DIY Community as a whole. However, being able to do what you want after lunch is pretty sweet, too.

Tomorrow, I think Noah (NoahW) and Jason (The other intern) and I are going to pick up our materials, pick up some muffin mix for salad club and other assorted foodstuffs, and get to work on our top-secret project.

Btw, I started thinking up a design for Instructables badges, and depending on when I learn how to use the laser cutter, I'll make 'em ASAP!

Cheers,
-Muffinator

p.s.: Sigh, I burned my Peanut Butter Sandwich this morning.... The picture looks nice, though...

May I ask... how did you burn a peanut butter sandwich?

Also, who has the Sony MP3 player?

um.... well, When you toast your peanut butter sandwich while writing an internship log, sometimes you forget about the toast. As for the MP3 player... that's just my camera case ;) Good Guess, Though.

You are so modest. Man, I wish I were you more than anyone else right now. Laser cutters, web design, surgical tubing, badges, secretism, muffins.....those are my dreams!

Glad you are having a great time!
